I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. (KJV).
There came then his brethren and his mother, and, standing without, sent unto him, calling him. And the multitude sat about him, and they said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren without seek for thee. And he answered them, saying, Who is my mother, or my brethren? And he looked round about on them which sat about him, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren! (KJV)
What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
For God shows no partiality.
Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.
As for the one who is weak in faith, welcome him, but not to quarrel over opinions.
Because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.
I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.
“And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’”
“Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”
“Whoever receives you receives me, and whoever receives me receives him who sent me.”
“How can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me take out the speck that is in your eye,’ when you yourself do not see the log that is in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take out the speck that is in your brother’s eye.”
“All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never cast out.”
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.
If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door. Its desire is for you, but you must rule over it.”
For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.
There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
To the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved.
And God, who knows the heart, bore witness to them, by giving them the Holy Spirit just as he did to us.

Likewise, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel, since they are heirs with you of the grace of life, so that your prayers may not be hindered.
1 Peter 2:20
For what credit is it if, when you sin and are beaten for it, you endure? But if when you do good and suffer for it you endure, this is a gracious thing in the sight of God.
